Learning leadership: Meet Peter Acheson, CEO at Peoplebank [VIDEO]


Peter Acheson is CEO at Peoplebank. Peoplebank consistently ranks as one of the best places to work in Australia – Earning Aon Hewitt Best Employer awards in both 2012 and 2013. There’s clearly a lot of things going right in how the organisation leads and develops people.

Peter and I recently sat down to talk about some of Peter’s perspectives on leadership and management. Some of the insights that come out of this chat:

• How data underpins trust at Peoplebank
• Why anyone who wants to be a CEO must keep a leadership journal
• How to drive organisational culture in a dispersed, international organisation
• How Peter builds future leaders by taking people out of their comfort zone
• The role of a leader in the culture of the organisation
• Pluck-a-duck and keeping employees motivated and engaged
